"In 1969, John Rendall and Ace Berg saw a lion cub for sale in Harrods.

Cramped and lonely in a small cage, they decided to bring it home
A local vicar allowed them to exercise the cub, now named Christian, in the church grounds but he quickly became to big for their flat

The only thing they could do was to try to reintroduce him to Africa, which they managed to do.

A year later, they wanted to visit him but were told that he was now the head of his own pride and as such was completely wild and would not remember them

Undaunted, they went anyway.

After many hours of looking for the pride, this is what happened when they finally found the wild lion."

WD,

A very touching story for sure.

I wonder if our ex's could ever share the same sentiments as the lion? (lol)

Wow, this certainly IS a tear jerker! Great film, glad you posted the link!

George Adamson (husband of Joy Adamson who wrote “Born Free”) helped the two guys locate the lion. Cool story even though the footage is almost 40 years old.

I have the film bookmarked.

I still haven't gotten tired of watching it.

I just love kitties! Even giant ones.

This was so cool- Born Free was my favorite movie as a child. I spent last night reading all about the Adamsons. Very interesting people with fascinating lives.
